And just as we thought that the Asus Transformer Prime, the Asus Eee Memo Pad and the Asus Transformer Prime TF700T was enough to keep Asus busy this year, the Taiwan-based company is now planning to release another tablet in the market niche. Dubbed as the Asus Padfone which was first introduced earlier last year at Computex.
Back then we didn’t know anything about the Transformer Prime but now, the Padfone looks a little like a follow-up to the Prime. But it’s more than just a name. The Padfone is actually a phone inside a tablet. Wait! Is this possible? For Asus it is! So the Padfone comes with a 10-inch tablet running on Android and actually has a reserved spot for its smartphone counterpart to fit in. Simply put, the Asus smartphone will be the one to operate the tablet itself. Without it, there will be no life. The Asus Padfone will also get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich upon release. Count that as a big plus. The Asus Padfone (smartphone) features a 4.3 AMOLED display and an 8 Megapixel camera with dual-LED flash.
Unfortunately, that’s all we have for now. Asus has wisely sealed the Padfone inside a locked glass container. So a hands-on will be impossible – for now. But surely this device brings out the boy inside of us and those robot fantasies as well. According to Asus, they are planning to reveal more of the Padfone’s features at the MWC (Mobile World Conference) this year.
